Girls Rule!

This year our summer fun has included Friday night croquet on the front lawn of Mark and Susan's new Grand Rivers home and I am lovin' it. We now have two croquet sets, shirts (the guys picked them out), and a league name.

Our croquet group (aka the Hard Knocks Club) is more social than competitive, but I must commend the girls for bringing the heat in August. Congrats to Isis, Susan, and Cindy - our winning players of the last three weeks. The girls rule!

A rush shot (that's croquet lingo) by Susan makes the guys look on in fear and awe:

Oh; and by the way, my husband has asked that I quit plastering his face all over the Internet on this blog and facebook. Seems he is shy or private or something. If you see him, will you let him know that I have honored his wishes and that my latest post does not have a picture of his face.

Thanks bunches!

Marina Day Pics

What a Blast. Thank you to Green Turtle Bay and Lighthouse Landing for providing all the fun. Free sailboat rides, kids crafts and activities, free kayaking and paddle boat rides, music, and fireworks. The marinas of Grand Rivers rocked it!

Barbara Atwood Proclaims Marina Day in Kentucky

Barbara Atwood of the Kentucky Tourism Arts and Heritage Cabinet visited Grand Rivers today, and on behalf of Governor Steve Beshear proclaimed Saturday, August 8, 2009 as Marina Day in Kentucky.

National Marina Day is an annual celebration produced by the Association of Marina Industries and recognizes the important recreational, environmental, and social contributions marinas make to thousands of waterfront communities all across America.

Grand Rivers is home to two of the finest marinas in the Kentucky Lake area and I was thrilled that the proclamation was presented here in Grand Rivers.

Green Turtle Bay Resort and Marina and Lighthouse Landing Resort and Marina serve as gateways to boating for thousands of people seeking to enjoy Kentucky and Barkley lakes. To celebrate National Marina Day, the marinas of Grand Rivers have planned a full day of fun. Find the schedule here on the Grand Rivers Marina Day website. Thank you Lighthouse Landing and Green Turtle Bay for serving as our gateway to boating fun.
